Greek Cauliflower Rice

lemon slices on top of cauliflower rice

This cauliflower rice recipe tastes like my favorite Greek recipe, thanks to the fresh lemon and Greek seasoning. It's so simple, but it really brings in a lot of flavor. We like to serve this with grilled chicken or steak.

Yield 4 servings
Prep Time 10 minutes
Cook Time 8 minutes
Total Time 18 minutes

Ingredients

  • 1 head cauliflower, about 4 cups riced
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • ½ onion, minced
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 2 teaspoons Greek seasoning
  • 1 lemon, juiced
  • Salt and pepper, to taste
  • 2 tablespoons minced parsley

Instructions

  1. Chop the cauliflower into florets and add to a food processor fitted with the blade attachment. Pulse until you have small rice-sized pieces. Alternately, finely chop the cauliflower into rice-sized pieces with a sharp knife.
  2. Heat a large skillet over medium heat and add the olive oil. When the oil is hot, add the cauliflower and onions to the skillet and cook for 3 minutes, stirring often. 
  3. Add the garlic and Greek seasoning and stir to combine.
  4. Cover the skillet with a lid and continue cooking for 5 minutes, stirring occasionally, or until the cauliflower is as soft as you'd like. 
  5. Remove cauliflower from the heat and squeeze the lemon over the cauliflower.
  6. Season with salt and pepper and sprinkle with parsley before serving.

Notes

We recommend fresh cauliflower for this recipe, rather than frozen. Most grocery stores sell riced cauliflower in the produce section.
